Summer time is almost here! Your little ones are probably excited to swim and play in the sun and so are we. While it's a given that kids will play and have fun under the sun, it's also important to make sure that they are well protected whilst swimming and playing in the water.
Here are some things to keep in mind when kids are out and about in the sun:
1) Wear protective clothing
For babies less than six months, it's recommended to keep him or her out of the sun. A wide-brimmed hat, long sleeved tops and pants, and sunglasses can help protect them from the sun's harmful UV rays.
2) Wear sunscreen or sunblock
For babies older than 6 months, applying broad-spectrum and water-resistant sunscreen/sunblock offers sun protection. "Natural" sunblocks such as those made of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are considered safer for children as these are gentler on kids' skin. Make sure to re-apply every 2 hours or more often if your little one is swimming or perspiring.
3) Wear sun-safe swimwear
Wearing sun-safe swimwear is the best way to protect your kids's skin from the sun's UV rays. It's easy to wear and convenient too! Our swimwear for girls is SPF50+, chlorine-resistant, AND never see-through. PLUS they come in bright and fun designs.
